What country invented the mirror?
The world’s oldest mirror was found during excavations on the territory of modern Iraq, it is about 10,000 years old.
Mirrors in ancient times were made of polished bronze.
Metals (bronze, silver, and copper) were used to make mirrors in the Mediterranean countries until the THIRTEENTH century, when Italian Venice began to produce mirrors of the usual type for us-from glass.
Venice maintained a monopoly on the production of mirrors for three centuries. the first mirrors were made in France in 1665, and in Germany-ten years later.
And in Russia, the first mirrors appeared only at the beginning of the XVIII century, under Peter I.
